View Full Version : headphones (on ear or over the ear)
Jun 23rd, 2012, 09:38 PM
Looking to spend between $50 - $80 and hoping for something with good sound and would be nice if they folded up somewhat for travel. Would like something that's comfortable to wear. Preferably something I can pick up locally as I'm going on a trip next week. FutureShop, Best Buy, The Source, etc...

Sennheiser PX100-II / Koss Portapro / Panasonic RP-HTF600-S / JVC HAS 160
The first 2 are open and foldable. The second 2 are closed, but neither of them isolate very well.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Ended up buying the AKG K518. They put the price up to $89.99 but had a buy 1 get 1 free deal at FS. And when I showed up to my local FS (Halifax) they had them tagged at $50! So I ended up getting 2 pairs for $50, wicked deal :D
I had to get the black/yellow color as they didn't have any white or red ones in stock but for that price they could have been pink and I probably would have bought them. Took awhile to make the purchase as the didn't know how to ring it in and had to do some overrides. In the end they made me pay for both pairs but then refunded me but it wasn't a big deal. There were several pairs left in stock. All had a sticker on them with $50 written in marker.
Like them so far, a bit snug but will try to stretch them out a bit.
